Question about 1986 Ford F 350
Like alicantecoli said about 1 hour. It is going to take longer to get all the plumbing off than to change the glowplugs. Be VERY careful with the valve cover gasket,it has wires in it and ain't cheap to replace.When you get down that far make sure the connection is not burnt.The glow plugs are a 10mm. When you get them out, take a small length of rubber tubing that fits on the glowplug tightly and start them with it, prevents crossthreading. If they have not worked for awhile they may have a build up on them.You can blow them out by turning the motor over (Not recommended,but it will work,lay a piece of carpet or something over the motor if you do that. Don't want no holes in the hood. Neverseeze them also. Hope this helps.Clean the turbo piping while you got it off
